Home makeover for NJ Superstorm victims

2-6-14

RANDOLPH, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman who is raising her three siblings after their parents were killed during Superstorm Sandy is getting some help from a television show.

The NBC home improvement show George to the Rescue has made repairs to the home of the Everett family in Randolph.

Fifty-four-year-old Richard Everett and his 48-year-old wife, Elizabeth, were killed and their two sons were injured when a large tree fell on their pickup truck on Oct. 29, 2012 as they drove home during the storm.

Twenty-year-old Zoe, a college sophomore, is raising her siblings: 18 year-old Talia, 15-year-old Theo and 12-year-old Pierce.

Zoe’s 8th grade teacher reached out to the show.

Show host George Oliphant tells The Daily Record (http://dailyre.co/N9tcTt ) that the renovations are meant “to help springboard them moving forward.”
